Blog: Practicing Scientology - 2013-03-04
I came across a little something that I think that people practicing Scientology – inside or out of the church – ought to consider while pursuing the higher realms of cognitive development and consciousness it can assist with the attainment of. The following is a segment of a talk by philosopher Ken Wilber on traps that certain spiritual teachers can set for students. I think this applies to both the teacher (auditor/supervisor/advisor) and the teachings themselves. The latter being so, in fact, has prompted several essays by me of late suggesting that while you strive for as close to perfection as you can with technical Scientology procedure, you not fall into the trap of becoming a radical, fundamentalist Scientologist (literalist) whether you are affiliated with the church or not.
